Apple has been so successful lately that they were bound to attract the attention of more and more computer hackers.
Now viruses are starting to crop up in Apple computers just as they have been in the PC for ages.
If you bought an Apple with the thought in mind of avoiding viruses... good luck {:soso_e113:}

How to know if your Mac is infected with the Flashback virus (and how to fix it)
By Tecca | Today in Tech – 8 hrs ago

If you're a Mac user, you've no doubt been worrying about the Flashback trojan, a computer virus that has infected
hundreds of thousands of computers running Mac OS X. Apple has been quick on the draw with a software update to stop
the spread of infection, but those who already have the malware on their systems are stuck waiting for Apple's
upcoming cure. Thankfully, there's no need to wait any longer — a number of anti-virus companies have just released
free software to automate the process of removing the trojan from your computer.

Kaspersky Labs, the company to first inform the public about the Flashback threat, has introduced a website called
Flashbackcheck. There, you can check to see if your computer is infected, and if it is, download software to delete
the rogue virus. Similarly, anti-virus company F-Secure has released its own cure, a tool called Flashback Removal.
The download is a relatively small file that scours your computer for the virus and helps isolate and eliminate the
threat if your Mac is infected.

Neither of these are official solutions from Apple. Still, with no word on exactly how long Apple's fix will take,
they make a really good substitute for anyone who's developed a well-founded case of digital germophobia.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
